Desmond Dekker

Pretty Africa


    Recorded at Chalk Farm Studio in the summer of 1973, this long-lost album, showcasing the talents of reggae superstar Desmond Dekker and his backing group, the Aces, was recently discovered in the legendary Trojan archives. Comprising 7 superb sides performed by Desmond Dekker himself, and a further five highlighting the not inconsiderable vocal talents of the Aces, we are sure fans will agree that the 45 year delay in the release of this previously unissued collection has certainly been well worth the wait!

    To mark the Half Centenary of Trojan Records, award-winning filmmakers, Pulse Films have created ‘Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records’, a stunning documentary tracing the iconic reggae label’s history over the past 50 years, to be premiered at the 2018 British Film Festival. In tandem with its official is the soundtrack album, collecting 24 of the most influential and the iconic recordings that feature in the film production.

    Released on double-gatefold vinyl, the striking artwork is embellished with stills from the documentary footage, which feature some of the key figures from the history of Trojan Records and Jamaican music.

    Lee Perry


      This compilation contains the albums ‘Kung Fu Meets The Dragon’ by The Mighty Upsetter, ‘Return Of The Wax’ by Lee Perry And The Upsetters and ‘Musical Bones’ by Vin Gordon And The Upsetters. All these albums were originally released in 1975, though ‘Kung Fu Meets The Dragon’ was the only one to appear with cover artwork. The other two are hidden gems which appeared back in the day as white label LPs.

      Here you’ll find instrumental tracks influenced by Eastern movie soundtracks, Spaghetti Western and jazzy tunes.

      Additional to the original album tracks the 2CD set includes a sped up reggae cover version of the traditional ‘House Of The Rising Sun’.
